Description

Please note: If you need a replacement / extra screen they are available here

PaPiRus Zero is an ePaper / eInk screen pHAT designed for the Raspberry Pi Zero and the new Raspberry Pi Zero W. It’s one of the first true low power displays for the Pi Zero mini computer.

Kit contains:

ePaper / eInk is a display technology that mimics the appearance of ink on normal paper. eUnlike conventional displays, ePaper reflects light – just like ordinary paper – and is capable of holding text and images indefinitely, even without electricity. Because of this, ePaper displays and single board computers or microcontrollers are a match made in heaven as together they use a very small amount of power whilst still bringing a display to your project.

The ePaper display that comes as standard with this kit is a 2.0″ display. One fantastic aspect of the ePaper display is the fact they don’t need any power to keep the image on the screen. Just like a Kindle, you can read whatever is on your screen in daylight without any reflection. More information including wiring diagrams, datasheets & and links to example code are available at rePaper.

Case Features:

  • 4 button actuators allow you to use the programmable buttons on the PaPiRus Zero HAT without the need to open up the case
  • All ports on the PaPiRus HAT and Pi Zero are accessible
  • Available with/without a watch strap in black or white
  • A clear transparent top allows you to keep an eye on your ePaper project
  • Comes with 4 x rubber feet
  • This transparent case design it allows you to view anything on your ePaper screen without having to open up the case. You can also view the PaPiRus Zero case in 3D here.

Potential Use Cases:

  • An eInk / ePaper Nametag
  • Display the latest weather forecast
  • A Pi Zero ePaper watch
  • Display your own Twitter Feed
  • Small dynamic digital signage (such as displaying prices for products in a store)
  • Outdoor displays where you don’t want the screen to be affected by sunlight reflection
  • Any sort of data-logging applications
  • We’re keen to hear any projects you plan to make with PaPiRus Zero. Tweet images of your projects to @PiSupply

Codebase:

PLEASE NOTE!! The PaPiRus Zero doesn’t come with a stacking header for use with the Pi Zero! If you still need one though, you can pick one up here.
